We are only weeks away from the holidays and sometimes guys may be hard to buy for, The Guy Corner NYC may have a few suggestions if you are looking for a gift for the Techie on your holiday shopping list in the “The Guy Corner NYC’s Tech Gifts Of 2014”. If he is a music lover, plays sports, a runner, just wants to watch TV or simply wants to look good when he is out and about, I have the perfect gift.

Martian Watches ($299.99) – As much of a techie as I am, I am not really a big fan of smart watches. What I am a fan of is nice looking time pieces and that is what he folks over at Martian Watches did, they combined the smartwatch notifications and the option to look like Dick Tracey and make phone calls right from your watch without losing the look of a solid nice looking watch.
Sengled Pulse ($169.99) – Pulse by Sengled is an integrated LED BR30 down/can/track-light with wireless JBL audio speakers with a true multi-channel audio system that is distributed over multiple speakers. Simply install the Pulse like any other light bulb, wirelessly connect the Pulse from any Bluetooth-enabled phone, tablet or PC, and immediately enjoy your favorite media apps in your kitchen, living room and patio or wherever there is a light socket. Sengled Pulse works with your favorite media apps (e.g. Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn Radio, etc.) directly from the Pulse mobile app.
uNu UltraPak Go ($79.99) – If you know a smartphone power user or someone who is simply away from normal charging sources all the time you will definitely like this device. uNu Go is a 3,000 mAh USB charger that will be ready for you with all day lasting power in 15 minutes.

The Fitbit Charge wireless activity and sleep wristband tracks your activity all-day long, during workouts and beyond. It tracks your steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, stairs climbed and active minutes as well as your sleep and wakes you with a silent, vibrating alarm. But that is not all the Caller ID enables call notifications right on your wrist.
Chromecast ($35.00) – Chromecast is an inexpensive media streaming adapter that turns any HDMI-equipped television into an app-driven smart TV when paired with a phone, tablet or computer. The total package is Google’s answer to products like Apple TV, and Roku 3. It’s a very simple setup that Google’s offering: the Chromecast is a small HDMI dongle that plugs directly into your TV, and connects to your Wi-Fi network. You choose what to watch on another device, and then Chromecast streams that content from the internet directly and displays it on your TV and the price is definitely right.
